BSN Summer Fast Track

BSN Summer Fast Track (online)

The BSN Summer Fast Track Program is an online program specifically for students who are enrolled in a regionally accredited Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program in California. BSN Summer Fast Track courses are offered in the summer term. Students may begin taking courses once they have completed at least one semester of their ADN program. BSN Summer Fast Track students are not formally accepted to CSUDH, but attend classes through Extended Education Special Sessions. This does not guarantee admission to the RN-BSN Program as students must still submit an application to the regular RN-BSN program and meet RN-BSN program and University requirements.

All classes are online using the Blackboard Learning Management System. There is a prescribed curriculum and at this time students are only allowed to take 6 units per summer. Tuition will be offered at a reduced rate ($270/unit). Once formally admitted into the RN-BSN Program, students can finish their degrees in as little as two semesters.* Seats are space-available.

Books for each course can be found online via the University Bookstore.


Beginning (date TBD) the application to the BSN Summer Fast Track program will open. Students must also provide an unofficial transcript showing current enrollment in at least one semester of their ADN program in the Spring semester before starting the BSN Summer Fast Track program. Students must also sign-up for an online orientation if this is their first Summer program with the School of Nursing at CSUDH.
